The Cloud Institute
In K-12 Education for Sustainability, we document, map and iterate our curricula. Our units and courses are living documents that change over time with new knowledge and applied insights. There are many reasons why we do that, much of which is applicable at Higher Education. This webinar will be a practical session designed to explore with faculty the ways in which we can embed the attributes of Education for Sustainability into our curriculum/courses and our teaching. We will draw from the “Educating for a Sustainable Future: Benchmarks for Individual and Social Learning” and the Cloud Institute’s “EfS Enduring Understandings, Standards and Performance Indicators” as the references for the essential elements of Education for Sustainability. Jaimie will discuss the brain science behind the kind of re-appraisal and re-framing required to learn for a sustainable future, and will demonstrate with participants how to distinguish between Education about un-Sustainability, education about Sustainability, and Education for a sustainable future.
Jaimie Cloud is a thought leader in the field of Education for Sustainability. She has authored The Cloud Institute’s EfS Framework, and several peer-reviewed journal chapters and articles on Sustainability and the significance of Education for Sustainability. Jaimie works extensively with educators, administrators, and school boards across the nation. She designs and facilitates professional development programs and directs the collaborative development of numerous instructional units and courses for K-12 and Higher Education designed to teach and learn across disciplines through the lens of sustainability.
